He was BBC Wildlife Poet of the Year 2006. He has published three collections: Postcards to Olympus (2004), Everyday Objects, Chance Remarks (2005) and Unconcerned But Not Indifferent - the Life of Man Ray (2006). Did I Hear That (2012) was a creative project with Royal Philharmonic Society exploring music as a source of inspiration.
